Is it news to you that the news in these posts includes what’s news to you and also to me?
New paragraph: What are your associations with “The News”?
Here are some new and old associations of mine, with “The News”:
- When I was growing up, my family watched and discussed the news.
- I remember Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, and David Brinkley delivering the news.
- Recently, I decided to stop watching the news, for my own mental health.
- Yesterday, I heard “I Got the News,” by Steely Dan.
News flash! As I’m typing this post on my iPhone, Oscar
The latest news: Taking that photo seemed to stop him.
Before Oscar starts up again, here’s all the news from the photos I snapped yesterday:
More news, before this post becomes old news:
- This morning, I’m facilitating a therapy group in a new room, because there are too many people signed up to fit in my office.
- This afternoon, I am having an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy session, to have new, healthier reactions to old memories.
- Tonight, I’m facilitating a planning meeting for my 45th high school reunion.
In case the word “facilitating” is news to anybody, it just means “making an action or process easy or easier.”
Final news of this post: Today, WordPress isn’t facilitating my use of quotes in text the way it usually does. I wonder if that’s headline news to anyone?
New thanks to my family, Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, the Woody Herman band, Oscar, everybody who attends my therapy groups, my high school classmates, the Fenway Park area of Boston, people who practice EMDR, Yarrow and other magicians, dogs, flowers, parkers, WordPress, facilitators everywhere, and you — of course! — for whatever news you bring here, today.
